I'm well and truly stuck in a rut clothes-wise. I have no idea what suits me, but that's mainly because I don't have much money to spend on clothes and so I haven't bought any new clothes for about three years!
Where can I buy:
* Interesting clothes (not just the boring stuff I see in the supermarket) * Bit more sophisticated than Primark (not being snobby about Primark, but I like things to be a bit smarter and more 'interesting') * Suitable for a 33 year old * Flattering for a size 14-er, i.e. no mini skirts! * Low cost!
I have some lovely clothes from Freecycle (seriously!) and my friend is a pro at buying great clothes from charity shops, but I'm a bit clueless and am very short on time.
I buy lots of things on ebay and seldom get something that doesn't fit. The trick is to work out which brands suit you and try things on to check your size, then look out for items in this brand and size for sale - better off people seem to buy good makes and either never wear them or only wear them once and there really are some great bargains to be had if you persevere.
